BOT Empire have signed Super Smash Bros. for Wii U player Kelsy "SuperGirlKels" Medeiros.

BOT Empire currently fields Gears of War, Call of Duty, Smite and Overwatch teams, and SuperGirlKels is their first Smash player. SuperGirlKels is considered one of the strongest Smash 4 players in Canada, and among the top Sonic players in the world.

"Without question, Kelsy is known for her charisma, kind heart, and seemingly viral positive attitude. It doesn't stop there, she's personable, giving, compassionate, comical," BOT Empire owner Jake Heiserman told theScore esports.

"On a more competitive side she is experienced, she is arguably the best or one of the best female players in Smash 4. She is a fierce competitor that is always looking for way to improve, seeking advice, and showing EVERY opponent respect win or lose."

SGK recently placed second at LAN ETS, 13th at Shine 2016 and fourth at EGLX, and is currently ranked second on the Montreal Smash 4 power rankings, behind EVO 2017 champion Elliot "Ally" Bastien Carroza-Oyarce. SGK told theScore esports that she'll be travelling and participating in more tournaments in 2017.

"2017 is full of experiences I can't wait to learn from," she said. "I have a lot planned regarding smash thanks to BOT, I will be traveling almost every month to places that I've never been before... so seeing new culture and meeting new people is exciting for me especially exceeding my knowledge in smash in new scenes with challengers from EVO, CEO, 2GG and more. I'm excited. "
